Besides New York, signs of vaccine supply strains appeared in Vermont, Michigan, South Carolina, New Jersey and Oregon.
“The problem all along has been a lack of allocation from Washington, and now that we’ve expanded the population of those eligible, the federal government continues to fail to meet the demand,” Sterne said by email.
Adding to the inter-governmental tension was a squabble in which several governors accused the Trump administration on Friday of deceptively pledging to distribute millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses from a stockpile that the U.S. health secretary has since acknowledged does not exist.
This is How to get it Started:
Support States with more Covid-19 Vaccine Funding
All the way back in September, CDC Director Robert Redfield testified in Congress that “the time is now” to get billions of dollars for COVID-19 vaccine distribution out to states.
But that didn’t happen, and public health officials say the delay in federal funding is in part to blame for the slow start of the vaccination campaign. This week, the federal government announced that some of the nearly $9 billion included in the December COVID-19 relief package is on its way to states. But with Biden’s new stimulus plan agenda to support the states with funding we should expect better results and an increase in vaccines supply.
